This silver dish with pomegranates is another one of my "finds".  Although, it's kind of hard to call it a "find" since it's been sitting on a shelf in my powder room for 12 years ... But it's funny how I forgot it was there. And yes, the pomegranates were a bit dusty. 

When I set up the photo shoot I used a very direct light coming in from the left side. Hopefully you can see the light depicted in the painting although the photo doesn't quite depict the light as well as the painting.

I am hosting my first Monday Night Studio this week. It's an open studio concept. Artists just need to bring supplies and a photo inspiration and I'll provide easels, glass palettes, wine and cheese and crackers. You can paint the same thing as me or I can help you with your own painting.  The session is from 4:00 until 8:00 and reservations are required as we are limited to 8 people. Email me if you are interested.

I must say that thanks to this Challenge I am in a really good place. I love painting more than I ever, I am painting better than ever and painting every day has finally become ... a habit! I am so excited! I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am!

I love how the colours reflect in the silver. Gorgeous! How on earth are you keeping this up??
I did a charity shop crawl at the weekend, looking for props for my own paintings. It's amazing what treasures can be found for such a small amount of money :0)

I too am in a good place, thanks to the challenge. I'm really pleased and amazed at myself for how I've been able to paint everyday, and I'm loving it. It is so rewarding at the end of the day to scan my painting and show it to the world and its great how they are piling up. I can't thank you enough for getting me going.
